Product reviews from our experts…


Beautifully made from three layers of coloured acetate, these fun butterfly shaped sunglasses are flattering and stylish. I love that the frame is biodegradable and that the lenses are plant based as well – combined with the pouch made from recycled bottles, these really are at the forefront of sustainable eyewear. The lovely wide sides block sunlight coming in at an angle and the frames are optical friendly if you’d like to pop in a prescription. I love that there is a 12 month warranty for scratched lenses and there is also a low cost program for lens replacement into the future as well.
